  • Support for Local Dataset Caching and Clustering Visualization Technique Now in Open Intel II - MapDotNet Blog
    This is a very effective method for visualizing thousands of point features distributed across a broad area The clustering support respects classifications and colors the cluster based on which classification range the average of the points for the cluster falls into The technical details For client side point layers there is a new cache local flag in the administration screen By checking this the entire point dataset is downloaded to the client when the project is opened as opposed to downloading content tile by tile There are two advantages to using this feature One is that as you zoom and pan around the map OI2 never has to go back to the server for point layer content and this provides a nice performance boost in the user experience Rendering is faster since all of the data is already locally cached The second benefit of point caching is it enables clustering I will describe this in more detail shortly Client caching is good for point datasets up to about 100K features Above that you will probably need to leave this feature disabled and fetch content tile by tile Otherwise the initial download and local memory footprint are too costly This limit may be greater or less depending also on the number of feature attributes downloaded and client platform phones may have more memory limitations Clustering provides a visual improvement in dense point datasets by reducing the noise on the map and giving you a count of features in dense areas The two screenshots below show the improvement over a standard point feature display There is another setting in the administration section at the column level It is the cluster flag under the uses dialog available for numeric columns Setting this flag tells OI2 to aggregate up into the clusters an average
